Both are include-type filters. "--include A --include B" will give the
same result as "--include B --include A" too.

Are there existing include/exclude filters where order does not
matter? For example gitattributes(5) says "When more than one pattern
matches the path, a later line overrides an earlier line."

Ignoring (possible) inconsistency thing, I think they are easy to
understand and use.
